New Template ... Love the New Look!

My first template - a medium tan center with dark brown side borders - did not seem to match "the mood" of my PhillyCollector blog. I would have liked that template for writing on 19th century British and/or American prose, but it felt less and less "right" for my blog about collecting modern fashion dolls and action figures. Scanned my template options and found this one, "Denim," available. Liked the preview shot and so I switched.

I like the clearer, cleaner look this template offers. The extra "white space" makes the photos pop more and the heavier titles for posts, I find an improvement.

Mmmm, very nice. Much more inviting.

Thanks! I think so, too.

I read your blog and other DAF blogs. The lighter, brighter, and more airy looking blogs made me re-view my own. The mood mis-match seemed obvious then.

Can I see some pictures [close-ups would be nice] of your Hairspray Tracy doll? The pictures I have seen online are so cute. I like her smile and her flip.

Pssst...Look for Edna Turnblad on Ebay. There's one with a BIN for $40.00!

I have the Deluxe "Singing" Tracy Turnblad with the upturned hairdo and wearing the pink with silver microdot dress. The Basic Tracy has the flip hairdo and wears the white blouse and blue skirt. (Rather wish I had bought that one - she's wearing a more practical outfit.)

Tracy does have a pretty face. I'll post close-up photos of her for you to consider.

Thanks for the tip on Edna. I won't be getting her now - I'm holding out for new Mixis and new Dynamite Girls ;-D

What new Mixis? Where?? I didn't see any mention of them on the Toy Fair '09 sites....

There was a statement in the FAQ page (tab under Mixis store) that four new dolls would be out in 2009; the statement is no longer there. YNU Group, Inc. was at the 2009 Canadian Toy and Hobby Fair; I haven't seen any Canadian or U.S. reviews of 2009 Mixis dolls. Perhaps the new dolls will not be out in 2009? I'm hoping that they will be out.
